Dreamy Photo Effects
You can add a dreamy photo effect to your pictures simply by adding a soft frame around the edges. It's an easy way to transform the look of your layout, like I did on my "Lean on Me" layout.

Free Photo Frame Downloads
Download the frames in a PDF file (below) for printing on a transparency. You can also download the .EPS file frames to add to your photos in Adobe Photoshop Elements before printing. Download the .PNG file frames to add to your photos in another program. Note: For the .PNG file, the image for Frame 1 is white, and the entire file will appear white; however, if you save the image and open it in a program with a different background, you will see the white color of the frame appear against a transparent background.
